Salted Caramel Dates Cake

This decadent salted caramel date cake is sophisticated enough to serve for dessert. Be sure to toast the coconut until light golden brown – doing so adds fantastic depth of flavour to the sponge and compliments the rich cream cheese frosting perfectly. It would also be remiss not to trickle any leftover salted caramel sauce over vanilla ice cream...
